Rep. Lizzie Fletcher wins re-election in Texas primary

Democratic Rep. Lizzie Fletcher easily won the primary in Texas's 7th Congressional District, defeating progressive challenger Pervez Agwan, the AP projected. The race in the newly redrawn suburban Houston district was made complicated by the issue of the Israel-Hamas war, with Fletcher as a strong supporter of Israel and Agwan advocating for a cease-fire.

Alabama Republican becomes the first House incumbent to lose a 2024 primary

Rep. Barry Moore has secured victory over Rep. Jerry Carl in a unique incumbent-vs.-incumbent Republican primary triggered by a Supreme Court decision mandating Alabama to adopt redrawn congressional districts, according to NBC News projections. Moore's success on Super Tuesday is a notable achievement for the House Freedom Caucus, a faction of far-right, anti-establishment figures often at odds with GOP leadership, with their super PAC supporting Moore. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, a former Freedom Caucus member, joined Moore in campaigning over the weekend in Alabama. Carl, associated with the business wing of the party, fell short in this contest.

North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore wins Republican nomination for Congress

North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore won the Republican nomination for Congress in the state's 14th District on Tuesday, starting what was expected to be a thorough shake-up of the U.S. House delegation.

The 14th is one of three congressional districts expected to flip from Democrats to Republicans in the November election after the state's Republican-controlled General Assembly redrew voting maps fashioned by judges for the 2022 elections.

The new maps seem likely to transform a delegation now comprising seven Democrats and seven Republicans to one with 10 Republicans and four Democrats.

California Senate: Schiff advances to November election to fill Feinstein’s seat

U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff will advance to a November election to decide who will fill the U.S. Senate seat held for three decades by the late Dianne Feinstein.

It’s not yet clear who will emerge from a crowded field of contenders to take on Schiff in the fall. California puts all candidates, regardless of party, on the same primary ballot and the two who get the most votes advance to the general election.

Democrats are expected to easily hold the Senate seat in November, a relief for the party as it seeks to defend a narrow majority. But the campaign still represents a new era in California politics, which was long dominated by Feinstein and a handful of other veteran politicians.

Super Tuesday LIVE Updates: Democratic Rep. Colin Allred wins campaign to challenge GOP Sen. Ted Cruz

Democratic U.S. Representative Colin Allred, a former NFL player who broke with his party over President Joe Biden’s handling of the U.S.-Mexico border, won his Senate primary Tuesday to propel an underdog campaign to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz.

Allred fended off his biggest Democratic challenger, state Sen. Roland Gutierrez, who became an outspoken voice for stricter gun laws after the Uvalde school shooting and courted the party’s left wing.

“We don’t have to be embarrassed by our senator,” Allred said in a speech to supporters. “We can get a new one and that’s what this is all about.”

Super Tuesday LIVE Updates: AP calls Vermont for Nikki Haley

Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley has scored a surprise victory on Super Tuesday, upsetting Donald Trump to win Vermont.

That victory will do little to dent Trump’s primary dominance, however. The former president won 11 other states on Super Tuesday.

Haley is the last major rival to Trump standing in a once-crowded primary field. She has increasingly stepped up her attacks on the former president, arguing that he will lose in November to President Joe Biden if he clinches the party’s nomination.

On the Democratic side, Biden also ran up the score with wins all around the country against only token primary opposition — all but cementing the long-expected November rematch between him and Trump.

Super Tuesday LIVE Updates: The Key Highlights

Biden and Trump Dominance: President Joe Biden easily secured victories in all Democratic contests, while former President Donald Trump dominated the Republican races in states such as Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Vermont.

Nikki Haley's Super Tuesday: Nikki Haley, despite an active campaign leading up to Super Tuesday, did not have any public events on election night, and her campaign expressed a "jubilant" mood. Her only hope is witnessed in Vermont where the former US ambassador to UN is in tight race with Donald Trump

Delegate Math and Presumptive Nominees: Despite their dominance, neither Biden nor Trump will be declared the "presumptive nominee" on Super Tuesday. Trump won't have enough delegates until March 12, and Biden will need to wait until March 19.

Trump Wins Maine Despite Haley's Endorsement: Despite Senator Susan Collins' endorsement of Nikki Haley in Maine, Trump secured a victory, showcasing how the former president has nationalized politics.

Biden's Referendum on Trump: Biden's campaign is betting on Super Tuesday results to shape the narrative for the general election, framing it as a referendum on Trump, hoping that voters who rejected Trump previously will do so again in November.

North Carolina Governor's Race Contrasts: The race for North Carolina governor will feature clear contrasts between Democratic Attorney General Josh Stein and Republican Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson.

Super Tuesday LIVE Updates: Trump met Elon Musk for election support: Report

Donald Trump, in urgent need of financial support for his presidential campaign, held a meeting in Palm Beach, Fla., with Elon Musk, according to a New York Times report. The former president and his team are actively seeking major donors to bolster campaign finances for the anticipated general election against President Biden. Trump, who has expressed admiration for Musk, is aiming for a one-on-one meeting with the billionaire to secure additional support. While it remains uncertain whether Musk will financially back Trump, his recent social media posts indicate a strong desire for Biden's defeat in November. Musk's substantial net worth of around $200 billion could potentially play a significant role in leveling the financial playing field for Trump against the anticipated well-funded campaign of Biden and his allies.

Moving to Maine, 20 Republican and 24 Democratic delegates are at stake. Once a Republican stronghold, Maine now exhibits a strong independent streak. Democrats tend to fare well in densely populated urban areas in the southern region, while Republicans secure substantial support in the sparsely populated northern part.

Massachusetts is in play with 40 Republican and 92 Democratic delegates. A Democratic stronghold, the state hasn't favored a Republican in a presidential election since 1984, and all congressional seats are held by Democrats.

Oklahoma is set to allocate 43 Republican and 36 Democratic delegates. Despite Oklahoma City being the least Republican area, Donald Trump's victory in Oklahoma County in 2020 was marginal, reflecting a nuanced political landscape.

In Tennessee, there are 58 Republican and 63 Democratic delegates on the line. While historically politically divided, Tennessee now mirrors other deeply red southern states, with Democratic strength concentrated in major cities like Memphis and Nashville. NBC has called the state for Trump

Super Tuesday is the most significant election day for selecting the US presidential race nominees.

In steep contrast to previous years, in 2024, Donald Trump started out with a 233-delegate lead over his rival Nikki Haley, even before tonight's contest began. Numerous sources believe Trump will walk away with most delegates tonight.

Today is Super Tuesday, which means the stakes are high, especially for Nikki Haley, who lost to fellow GOP contender Donald Trump in her home state. Losing South Carolina was a big blow to Haley, who served as the state's 116th governor from 2011 to 2017. In a final pitch to voters on Tuesday, March 5, Haley confirmed she has no plans to run third party if the former president wins the GOP primary.

“I am a conservative Republican. I have been all my life. And the problem is right now, everybody is saying if you don't if you don't support Donald Trump, you're a Democrat. That's terrible. And that's not unifying, and that's not going to get anyone to win a general election. What I will tell you is I'm a conservative Republican,” Haley said in an interview with Fox News.

“I have said many, many times I would not run as an independent. I would not run as no labels because I am a Republican. And that's who I've always been. That's what I'm going to do. And so that's my focus. What we wanted was to give people a voice. We're going to have that today. 16 states and territories are going to vote. God bless America that we get to do that. And then we're going to take it from there. That's what we've always said,” she added.

Super Tuesday LIVE Updates: Biden to go on the offensive

In preparation for the 2024 election, President Biden is advocating for a more aggressive strategy aimed at confronting Donald Trump directly, according to Axios report. Privately, Biden believes that taunting Trump daily will rattle him, given his perceived intellectual and emotional vulnerability. The president sees an opportunity to provoke Trump into explosive reactions, intending to make the former president go "haywire in public," according to an adviser.

The president's feistiness has been on display in recent weeks, with taunts like "Loser" becoming a favorite retort against Trump. Biden has expressed confidence in beating Trump again, highlighting Trump's numerous failed legal challenges regarding the 2020 election results. The approach involves making the contest as much about Trump as Biden's own achievements, potentially resonating with voters who appreciated Biden's combative style during the 2012 vice-presidential debate against Rep. Paul Ryan.

Super Tuesday LIVE Updates: Numbers are stacked against Nikki Haley

Former President Donald Trump heads into Super Tuesday with a substantial lead in GOP delegates over Nikki Haley. By the night's end, he's likely to approach the crucial 1,215 delegates needed to end the race. Despite winning only in Washington, D.C., Haley's coalition, relying on affluent, college-educated suburbanites, faces challenges. Many Super Tuesday states have demographics favoring Trump, and party rules limit non-Republicans' participation.

In states like South Carolina, where 40% of the vote got Haley only 6% of delegates, even strong showings might not yield meaningful delegate gains. To overcome this, Haley needs to broaden her coalition or boost turnout. Analyzing GOP caucuses and primaries, our estimates show that unless she secures outright majorities in multiple states, Haley's campaign will struggle against the delegate math. Explore our state-by-state analysis for insights into Super Tuesday and beyond.

Super Tuesday LIVE Updates: 40% voters think Trump's policies were better than Biden

Americans hold more positive views of Donald Trump's policies than those of President Biden, according to a New York Times/Siena College poll. The data indicates that 40% of voters believe Trump's policies personally benefited them, while only 18% express the same sentiment about Biden's policies. In contrast, 43% of voters feel that Biden's policies have had a negative impact on them, nearly double the percentage who say the same about Trump's policies, as per the latest Times/Siena poll.

This sentiment aligns with a broader trend where presidents tend to be remembered more favorably once they leave office. A retrospective analysis of nine out of the past 11 presidents, including Trump, reveals that approval of job performance typically increases by 12 percentage points after leaving office, according to a Gallup poll from June. Despite the intense and critical opinions surrounding both Biden and Trump, the perceived impact of policies on individuals significantly favors Trump in the eyes of the American electorate.

Super Tuesday Live updates: States you can't miss tracking today

While most eyes will be on the presidential race, particularly for the Republicans, voters will also be making decisions on their final slate of candidates in Senate, House and governors races. Their vote today will determine political control of Congress and states for the next two to four years.

California Senate Seat:

Focus will be on Democratic Senate nominee selection as the seat has been previously held by the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein. Being a solidly blue seat (tilted towards the Democrats) the primary is likely to indicate front-runner for November election. The state’s so-called jungle primary system means that the top two vote-getters advance to the general election, regardless of party. Representative Adam Schiff is the front-runner, and is likely to nab one of two winning spots. However, due to a mail-in voting the final results will be delayed. Read More

North Carolina Gubernatorial Race:

Super Tuesday will kick off one of the most pivotal governor’s races this fall in North Carolina. It features two candidates with starkly different views in one of the country’s most contested swing states. If Josh Stein, the state’s attorney general and a traditional Democrat wins, he’s likely to face off in November against Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson, a right-wing culture warrior. It will inevitably be a referendum on the national parties. Republicans will link Stein to Biden, seeking to tie the Democratic candidate to a president with underwater approval ratings. Democrats, meanwhile, have already begun painting Robinson as an extremist on issues like abortion rights.

Texas Senate Challenger:

The state will pick the Democratic challenger to Sen. Ted Cruz, who is seeking a third term. Nine Democratic candidates are looking to be Cruz's opponent in the fall. Texas stands out as a crucial battleground on Super Tuesday. Positioned on the southern border, Texas has grappled with pressing issues like immigration, gun violence, and abortion access. The state's considerable number of Republican House members, electors in the Electoral College, and its role in leading the opposition to the Biden administration underscore its pivotal role in shaping the political landscape.
